“THE band to watch…huge choruses” – Tom Salmon, BBC Introducing
“Riff-based guitar music at its absolute best, well-crafted songs…truly excellent” – Get into This
Primyl Vinyl are ready to storm into the centre of the UK music scene and blow fans away with their new single ‘Baby Steps’. The trio formed whilst they were all studying in Liverpool, but they are now spread out across the UK. From Peterborough (Matt, lead vocals and guitar) to Fareham (Steve, vocals and lead guitar) to Barrow-in-Furness (Nahum, drummer and vocalist) the band are miles apart…but this won’t stop them from making their mark!
‘Baby Steps’ looks to cement them as THE rock band to take note of in 2020. Although their legendary live shows are temporarily postponed, the new track combines riffs, electronic earthquakes and vocals that compensate for the loss of seeing the trio play live.
Primyl Vinyl create their songs as both a unifying experience for their legions of fans across the UK and to help deal cathartically with individual mental health issues, as well as wider social anxieties – with ‘Baby Steps’ comes a message to stay grounded, whatever is happening in the world around you.
Here’s what Matt has to say: “Having witnessed first-hand the internal mental battles of two people very close to me, I started to write more consciously to open this topic up – to make it feel more normal to discuss; to make our gigs feel like a sanctuary to reflect and then to forget it for 40 minutes. Music has to mean something to somebody, or else what is the point?”
Despite currently mourning the loss, via a puncture wound, of their inflatable whale mascot Jeremy (who hadn’t missed a 2019 gig!) the band recorded their latest track in an old barn to capture the reverb and energy of their live shows. Though Jeremy is only a cherished memory, Primyl Vinyl are in it for the long run.
